The Warriors are doing it tough. We've all heard it, it's not new news, but it's the reality.
If the NRL are unable to get special exemptions for some of the players families to enter Australia, the Kiwi club could be down another 3-4 front line starting players.
But one good thing to come out of all of this is the loan player system.
Guns unable to break into their respective sides loaned to the Warriors and getting valuable reps in.
If the likes of wingers Ken Maumalo and David Fusitu'a, along with forwards Agnatius Paasi and King Vuniyayaywa do leave, they will need more bodies.
Here are four guns we'd (Jackson)love to see don the bush shirt ASAP;
Cody Ramesy, Dragons - wing/fullback
Someone needs to give this bloke a run ASAP.
Not too sure where he is at with his shoulder rehab, but the 70s porn start looking fullback who lit up the Nines is a straight up freak.
Would be very handy on the wing for the Wahs.
Tom Dearden, Broncos - halfback
If Brisbane don't want to play him in the halves, come on down cuz!
Dearden was tipped by many to be the Broncos long term answer at 7 but with the arrival of Croft, hasn't really got a crack at it.
Nikorima to 9, playing outside Blake Green, zero pressure to do anything other than have a crack really, beauty.
Tristan Sailor, Dragons - wing/fullback/half/fucking anywhere just get him on
If Fus and Ken do go home, the Warriors are going to be really slim on outside backs.
I don't care where you play him but Sailor has to be top of the loan wish list - and starting on day one.
An absolute lightening rood on attack.
Poasa Faamausili, Roosters - prop
Second stint SZN!
Already had a few games this year before returning to the Chooks.
But if they're 100% healthy it seems hard to fit Faamausuli into the 17. So, come on back mate!
Albert Vete, Storm - prop
No brainer this one.
Played for the club before, can't break into Storm 17, get around big Albert.
Imagine how hyped the boys would be to seem him rock back in.
